Student Health Center and Local Healthcare Facilities

The Minot State Student Health Center should be your first stop unless you have a major emergency. Be sure to call ahead to set up an appointment. If you need to be referred to a local clinic, they can help direct you.

If the Student Health Center is closed, you have other options for urgent medical needs:

If you need to see a doctor for an urgent reason when the MSU Student Health Center is closed, the Sanford Health Walk-in Clinic is a good choice because you do not need an appointment. The clinic is open until 9 p.m. on weekdays and is also open limited hours on weekends and holidays. You can see a doctor at the clinic for bone fractures, sprains, strains, cuts, colds, flu, earaches, sore throats, minor burns, pinkeye, stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, stiches, bladder infections, and other minor health problems.

Call 911 if you need the assistance of paramedics and an ambulance.

Be aware that if you go to the emergency room at a hospital in the U.S. whenyour condition is not considered a true emergency, you will wait a long time tobe seen by the doctor and the cost will be extremely high.

If you are experiencing accute dental pain, or need to visit a dentist for any reason, we recommend that you make an appointment with a dentist at Northland Community Health Center. The cost of dental care at Northland is based on an individual's ability to pay, and may be much more affordable to international students than other dental clinics in Minot.
